Furnaces are a lot older than I used to think

Did you know that your great grandfather would have been able to use an actual furnace? Out of ignorance, I have always assumed that the furnace has only been around for maybe 50-60 years.

  • I had always imagined that the only heating system that anyone ever had before then was a fireplace or a wood stove.

Recently, I was talking with one of my friends about HVAC technology, and he told me that the first electric furnace was invented in 1879. I had no idea! Apparently, Sir William Siemens created the arc furnace to show in Paris in that year. The arc furnace would work a lot like our furnaces do today. Some sort of fuel would be pumped into a combustion chamber, and an electrode would spark to ignite the fuel. This fuel would begin to burn, causing the furnace to get very warm, and this heat would be pumped into the rest of the building. Honestly, I never realized that furnaces today are almost exactly the same. We use a different type of fuel and have made the furnace a lot more compact and safe, but we haven’t tried to reinvent the wheel when it comes to heating systems. I was completely floored. This would mean that heating systems were invented long before vehicles and other technology! I wonder if those kinds of furnaces were able to be used in homes around our nation. How long did it take before the furnace would become a household item and before the fireplace and wood stove would become obsolete? Maybe I should look that up.

The worst part about installing HVAC units in new houses

As an HVAC technician, I actually like diagnosing and fixing air conditioners and furnaces when they stop working. I get to meet new people when I go to their houses, and I get the challenge of taking their HVAC unit apart and figuring out what is wrong with it. However, as an HVAC technician, I am also responsible for installing new HVAC units in houses that are being built in our town. This job isn’t terrible, but it also isn’t very fun. Installing new HVAC units is actually my least favorite part of being an HVAC technician. First of all, we spend a lot of time installing the ducts and vents for the HVAC units when the house is being built. The vents are typically installed in the attic or in the crawl space of the house. Every once in awhile, we get to put the HVAC ducts in a basement. However, if it is in the crawl space or attic, we spend a lot of time climbing or crawling in dirty locations. A lot of houses are built during the winter or summer, which means that we spend all day working in extreme temperatures without an air conditioner or furnace. It is especially hard to work because your hands are cold without a furnace. Carrying the HVAC units is also difficult because it takes a lot of manpower to lift an entire furnace or air conditioner. We have to be extremely careful not to damage the house or the HVAC unit because people who are building houses get very upset with things like that. Honestly, I wish that I could spend my entire career as an HVAC technician doing service calls.

More Restaurants Need to Switch to New HVAC Technology

I just love to prepare and eat food. It comes naturally because my mother had me in the kitchen with her before I was even tall enough to see the countertops. Cooking and enjoying food became one of those fundamental joys of my life. While cooking is what I do most, I still really love to go out and enjoy some really nice cuisine. Now, this doesn’t necessarily mean a big fancy restaurant with endless choices. I gravitate more to places where the food is prepared well and there is some passion for what a chef is doing. The food is really all that matters, up to a point that is. I have this favorite little spot that I just love to go to. It isn’t much in the decor department but the chef is talented and the food is exquisite. There is only one serious drawback. The HVAC system is just terrible. I don’t care how great the food is if I am sweating over my meal. Conversely, I don’t like it much when my food gets cold in minutes because the dining room is so chilly. I know that restaurant HVAC can be complicated. The part of the dining room nearest the kitchen is always a bit to warm. Compensating for that makes the rest of the dining room just too cool. But, there are a number of things that can rectify this situation. From zoned controlled HVAC to using ductless heating and cooling units for specific areas, there are proven solutions. I just hate to see good food get spoiled because of the temperature.

Give the Pregnant Lady Some HVAC Comfort

Our first child is on the way.

I am not fully panicking but, it’s close.

My wife and I have always been planners. And then, we simply execute those well thought out plans. This pregnancy has shown us how frivolous all plans can be. This is yet another example of how we all love to pretend we are actually in control of what is going on. That control is merely a mirage. Life is going to happen no matter what your plan is. I never even considered the HVAC when we were planning to get pregnant. We figured it would take quite a while for my wife to get pregnant given all the years of birth control. She got pregnant right away. So much for the first part of the plan which was don’t be super pregnant in the summer. The plans fell through even more when the pregnancy became difficult in the middle of the second trimester. My wife’s plan was to work up until the last week or so before she was due. That plan also went by by as she was sent to bed with basically four months of being pregnant left. And the house was so hot because our HVAC sucks. I didn’t know what do. I tried a window unit but that was a pathetic fail. So, I called the HVAC folks and pleaded for help. They came to the rescue with a ductless system that was put right into the master suite. Not only is it awesome cool in there for my wife but, she has her own independent control that she can operate remotely. Now, if we can just make it to the finish line and have this beautiful baby.

Learning about HVAC doesn’t have to be long and boring

When my HVAC system stopped working last month I wasn’t sure what to do so I started looking online for resources that could teach me about HVAC.

I learned very quickly how to repair my HVAC system and now I have people asking me to help teach them about heating and cooling.

The main thing that I did to learn about HVAC was learning how to watch HVAC videos online. Once I learned where to find the right HVAC education it wasn’t hard. I did have to learn about a lot of HVAC parts and put in some work to figure out how to work the HVAC system, but after that it was smooth sailing. If you are thinking about fixing your HVAC system I think you will do just fine. I recommend videos on HVAC over just reading because I think it’s easier to learn about HVAC when you can see exactly what they are talking about. I know there are books out there about HVAC, or you can read your HVAC manual if you don’t like watching videos. The other thing you can do to learn about your HVAC system is to talk to your HVAC technician. A lot of times an HVAC technician won’t mind helping you out at all, in fact many HVAC technicians want to help you learn about your system. Now I have saved a bunch of money because I buy my HVAC parts in bulk and I install them very easily. I actually enjoy fixing my HVAC system these days!

When I was younger I knew I wanted to follow in my dad's footsteps

I always have friends asking me to help them with their HVAC systems, so I have had to tell them I charge for my HVAC systems, that solved the problem quickly! It’s funny that everyone wants a nice HVAC system but when they learn how much it costs they no longer want a nice HVAC system

When I was younger I always watched my dad at work and I knew I wanted to be like him. He was an HVAC technician for as long as I can remember. I went to school to become an HVAC technician but after I graduated I realized that I did not want to be an HVAC technician. I became the manager of my dad’s HVAC company and I really loved it. I was still able to work with my dad in the HVAC industry but I didn’t have to deal with all of the HVAC parts. The best thing about working in the HVAC industry is that I know how to fix my own HVAC system. I can also get a big discount on HVAC parts and different systems, so whenever I want to upgrade my HVAC system it’s basically free. I always have friends asking me to help them with their HVAC systems, so I have had to tell them I charge for my HVAC systems, that solved the problem quickly! It’s funny that everyone wants a nice HVAC system but when they learn how much it costs they no longer want a nice HVAC system. I enjoy watching all of the HVAC technicians bring in the old HVAC systems and replace them with new ones, there’s a certain satisfaction in fixing an HVAC system. Maybe at some point when my dad leaves I will become a working HVAC technician again, but I think I make a lot more money and do less work just being the manager of the HVAC company.

Living in a lower condo can be challenging at times

Moving out of my parents’ home was 1 of the scariest things that I have ever done.

I did not guess that I would be as terrified as I was when it certainly came down to moving out.

I lived with my parents for twenty-more than four years of my life, plus it was so different when I finally decided to transport out. My best friend’s parents own some apartments, plus they offered me a undoubtedly fantastic deal on renting 1 of them. I decided to go with the cheapest 1 which was a basement apartment, however looking back, I wish that I would have chosen a different 1 of their apartments because living in a basement is not fun… The worst area is that there is only 1 window in the entire apartment, plus it hardly brings in any afternoonlight at all. I have found myself getting depressed at times from lack of afternoonlight in my house. It is also absolutely humid plus damp down there… When I first moved into the apartment, I was told to make sure that I use a dehumidifier. My friend’s parents gave me a dehumidifier when I moved in, which was super nice of them. I hastily realized that just 1 dehumidifer was not going to be enough. It always felt damp in my apartment, so I went plus obtained a second dehumidifier. Now that I have 2 of them running 24/7, my condo is a lot less humid plus sticky feeling. I hope to get an cooling system soon which will help even more with keeping the air a little more dry.

Boilers are a lot older than I used to think

Did you recognize that your good Grandpa would have been able to use an actual gas furnace? Out of ignorance, I have always assumed that the gas furnace has only been around for maybe 50-60 years.

I had always imagined that the only heating plan that anyone ever had before then was a fireplace or a wood stove, and recently, I was talking with 1 of my friends about Heating, Ventilation and A/C technology, and he told me that the first electric gas furnace was invented in 1877.

I had no idea! Apparently, Sir William Siemens created the arc gas furnace to show in Paris in that year. The arc gas furnace would labor a lot enjoy our gas gas furnaces do this week. Some sort of fuel would be pumped into a combustion chamber, and an electrode would spark to ignite the fuel. This fuel would begin to burn, causing the gas furnace to get entirely warm, and this heat would be pumped into the rest of the building. Honestly, I never realized that gas gas furnaces this month are almost exactly the same. Every one of us use a odd type of fuel and have made the gas furnace a lot more compact and safe, however all of us haven’t tried to reinvent the wheel when it comes to gas furnaces. I was completely floored. This would mean that gas gas furnaces were invented long before vehicles and other technology! I wonder if those kinds of gas gas furnaces were able to be used in homes around our nation. How long did it take before the gas furnace would become a household item and before the fireplace and wood stove would become obsolete? Maybe I should look that up.
